It may well be that a fine-grained interface isn't practical, but

Group is problematic; I don't recall Windows having group ownership
(as distinct from group ACLs), and AFS PTS groups are very different
from Unix groups.
As I said, I'm all in favor of such an API, just skeptical that a
useful one can be devised.
